Work your legs, glutes and core as you alternate between 2 exercises for 8 rounds – 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off – for each section:
Part 1 – wall sit and air squats
Part 2 – glute bridge hold and leg lowers
Part 3 – split squat on both sides.
This calming seated routine is perfect if you’ve got any aches, pains or injuries, or you simply want to unwind. You’ll start with some breathing exercises, followed by some gentle stretches and finally a body scan. You can either sit on a mat or on a chair, whichever is more comfortable for you.
Olivia shows how you can avoid common runners’ issues, such as muscle soreness and shin splints, by warming up your muscles before your run and stretching them afterwards. If you have a foam roller, make sure it’s nearby – if not, you can use self-massage instead.
